Rumour: Is Sony Readying An Xperia Z Tablet?

New tablet codenamed "Pollux" could feature a 10" screen and 8 mp camera.


If the rumours are to be believed, Sony is readying a tablet that replicates the design of its recently announced flagship smartphone — The Xperia Z. The Xperia Z tablet is expected to feature a large Full HD 10.1" screen and a 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor. It will probably run Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) out of the box. The Xperia Z tablet has been codenamed "Pollux" after the giant star, and has been given the model number C690X for the western region (It's coded SO-03E in Japan).

Here is the list of rumoured specifications:

  • 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor.
  • 10.1" screen with pixel dimensions of 1920x1200.
  • 2 GB RAM.
  • 32 GB storage (no word on micro-SD card slot).
  • 6.9 mm thickness.
  • LTE and Wi-Fi connectivity.
  • 8 mp rear camera and 2 mp front camera.
  • Water and dust resistant.
  • 6000 mAh battery.
  • Available colours: black and white.

Although the specs look impressive, Sony's previous tablets have failed to make much of a mark. We wonder if the Xperia Z tablet can change the tide in Sony's favour this time around.
